Tasting Notes

Undoubtedly one of the finest vintages ever made. The aromas are incredibly refined with notes of red cherries, herbs and minerals which develop in the glass.

There is a superb mineral finish and great acidity which gives wonderful balance. This is a magnificent wine which will develop for 30 years or more.
